1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS All Street Project Car
This is my 1986 Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS. I have owned this car for 13
years and it has been in the family for over 26 years. The car has just
under 29,000 original miles. The engine and drivetrain is all original as
well as the paint and interior. I didn't drive the car much, so I decided
to make a few subtle changes, mostly in the stance, so I would drive it
more. Just don't care for the stock stance on these cars. For the front I
used 2" drop Belltech spindles and 1" drop Belltech springs. For the rear I
used OPG 3" drop rear springs. 3" total drop front and rear. I used
Belltech Street Performance shocks on all four corners. The wheels are
Center Line Retros 18 x7 front, 18 x 8 rear. Nitto NT555 tires 225/45 in
the front, 255/45 in the rear. Also for a little more sound, I went with
Flowmaster Super 40 mufflers and custom tailpipes. I drive the car a lot
now just cause I enjoy it so much more. I didn't cut anything and I have
everything to put the car back original if I ever decide to in the future.
Thanks for looking!
83 Chevy Caprice 305 0-60mph (fastest round but still slow :D)
*UPDATE 12/13/11: After i get my Trans checked out this summer i'll upload
a REAL 0-60 showing what these cars should be able to do.
[*UPDATE 7/18/10: 350 swap COMPLETE! Stay tuned for a new 0-60!!
*UPDATE* 5/15/10: Currently getting a mildly modified 350 ready to swap in,
check my channel for the update once its done.
*UPDATE (9/4/09)* Transmission has been rebuilt; hoping to post a new 0-60
once i get some engine issues sorted out. The new tranny has been beefed up
too so i think there'll be a big difference.]
Ok so i guess it was driver error in the last video. I don't normally floor
this thing and i guess ya really gutta push it through the floorboards! And
i did all this with about 200lbs of junk in the trunk.
I was pleased to find out today that i have the TH700-R4 transmission (one
of the better transmissions)
